Hi there,

Well it's just because of lens errors, they are very common in these digital cameras. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Follow the below steps to do a try to correct it -
1. Remove the batteries from the camera, wait a few minutes. Put a fresh (or new) set of batteries back in and turn the camera on. If that didn't work, try pressing and holding the Function or OK button while turning the camera on.
2. Blow compressed air in the gaps around the lens barrels with the idea of blowing out any sand or grit that may be in there jamming the lens. Other variations include blowing with a hair dryer in “no heat” setting, or sucking the gaps with a vacuum (careful with this one).
3. Place the camera flat on its back on a table, pointed at the ceiling. Press and hold the shutter button down, and at the same time press the power-on button. The idea is that the camera will try to autofocus while the lens is extending, hopefully seating the lens barrel guide pins back into their slots. If further you have the same problem it means there is a gear-motor alignment of the lens which moves in and out with the help of motor. This part is replaceable at an authorized Samsung Service Center. Aprox repair cost is $120.

Samsung Digimax S800 has lens stuck in open position. Replaced with fresh alkaline batteries, pressed on button, screen lit up for a second or so, turned off and gave 3 beeps. Any ideas? Thanks, Kevin


Did you accidentally drop it? If you did then there is a big chance that the lens is busted. If you didn't drop it, then it could be just dust/dirt inside the lens mechanism. Hold your camera with the lens facing the ground and then repeatedly tap it your camera gently - moderately to remove the dirt. You can also try spraying compressed air into it.

this problem is a is usual occurrence when the camera is not well powered.

please ensure you get the battery with right voltage and wattage, the required is usually written around or in the battery compartment.

My samsung digimax s800 won't turn on,the batterys are ok


the lens mechanism is not initialising, the cogs that move the lens are out of alignment slightly. you colud try and fix this yourself by taking the camera apart and realigning it manually, or sometimes you can get hold of the prodtruding lens and gently pull, be carefull !! you might hear a grinding noise as you pull this is just the main lens cog turning. once fully out put batterys back in and give it a go

Jammed camera


A temporary fix to power up is to press the menu and power button at the same time. When the lens is extended and it beeps, on my camera , the lens is *stuck* Give it a gentle tug , then try the power button again
